Giving Ministry Wheels Lent Appeal was for equipping our partner churches in Angola and Mozambique by investing in their transport. The appeal raised £63,500 and helped to fund a good quality second hand vehicle for Angola, Lebombo (Southern Mozambique) and Niassa (northern Mozambique).
Representatives of ALMA attended the celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the Diocese of Angola in Luanda.
The Bishop of Kensington, Paul Williams, visited both Mozambique dioceses.
Training God’s people Lent Appeal raised £50,000. It has been used to provide additional lay and clerical training, supporting the tremendous growth the Mozambican and Angolan churches are experiencing, and has also funded the purchase of 180 ‘Africa Bible Commentaries’ in Portuguese.
The Bishop of Lebombo, Dinis Sengulane, was present at the ALMA Sunday celebration service.
In November, there was a special service in St Paul’s Cathedral to mark Bishop Donald Arden’s 50th anniversary as Bishop. Bishop Arden is the father of ALMA, and previously Archbishop of Central Africa.
